This latest edition contains many of the oringinal's favourite topics and a host of new features. There are major sections ranging from world affairs and economics, through literature and music, to science, medicine and the environment; a detailed world gazetteer (with updated census figures); as well as sections on subjects as diverse as sporting winners, art terms and money matters.
